Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
Palmolive dish liquid had a ubiquitous commercial in which a dowdy manicurist name Madge would tell her clients, "You're soaking in it," about the dish soap. That is really my only association with the name Madge, other than it being a flippant name they call Madonna in the tabloids. Given that it rhymes with vag, I'd avoid it as a nickname. Margaret has a lot of cute nicknames, so I can't imagine choosing this one. Even Marge is better than Madge.

In 2018, 86 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Madge* who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 3, 224th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.

*as a first name, not a nickname.

Hideous. And reminds me of a grumpy old witch.

I really dislike Madge and Marge as nicknames for Margaret - they are horrid and dowdy and unworthy of beautiful Margaret - Madge was an old vulgar name for a certain part of the female anatomy, certainly used up to and during the eighteenth century in Britain. Madge seems reminiscent of 1920s and 1930s boarding school jolly hockey sticks characters in books for girls. Marge reminds me of margarine.

I think Madge is a great nickname for Margaret or Magdalena. It's more original than Maggie, but it doesn't have to be just a nickname either.

I actually really like this as a nickname for Margaret. It's cute, quirky, unique, but professional at the same time.

I think this would be a good nickname for a girl named Madison, instead of the overused "Maddie".

I know somebody named Magdalene, whom we call Madge.

I think it's an OK nickname for Margaret. But it wouldn't do for a full first name.

Yet another of Madonna's names... her pet name.
